About this book

For decades, the determination of bone maturity has relied on a visual evaluation of skeletal development in the hand and wrist, most commonly using the Greulich and Pyle atlas. The Gilsanz and Ratib digital atlas takes advantage of the advent of digital imaging and provides a more effective and objective approach to skeletal maturity assessment. This atlas integrates the key morphological features of ossification in the bones of the hand and wrist and provides idealized, sex- and age-specific images of skeletal development. This computer-generated set of images should serve as a reasonable alternative to the reference books currently available.

Reviews

From the reviews:

Doody's Book Review Service (July 2005): "This digital format will likely become the new gold standard for bone age assessment. This publication rises above the weakness of competing bone age atlases because of its unique clinical digital format."

Pediatr Radiol (2005)35:1035: "This atlas is easy to use and, dare I say, fun. ... I strongly recommend this new atlas for any department doing a few dozen bone ages each week. ... the standard images are more precise and the standard deviation calculator is very convenient."

"This little book is a practical atlas of the skeletal maturity, related to the hand bone age … . As an atlas, it contains a lot of images of the radiological development of the bones of the hand. … The authors have achieved a complete, simple, and quickly available atlas on hand bone age that will be of help to radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and pediatricians, and even be relevant to forensic medicine." (F. Duparc, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, Vol. 27 (4), 2005)
